Thanks Dan!  So funny to read a day in the life of a guy versus the fine young ladies we have read about thus far!  It shows how much simpler guys routines are compared to ours.  Can you imagine ladies?!  Just not having to put on makeup every morning in itself would be amazing.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!  This spring-like weather is something I could get used to!
